jobs and the economy. really? but will there be anything new? or just more green energy and higher taxes? we've heard that stuff before, but let's go to our panel. here's robert wolfe host of impact players on reuters tv. cnbc contributor bob lutz. former gm vice chair and author of car guys versus bean counters. and michael steele former republican national committee chairman. welcome, gentlemen. bob lutz, let me go to you. what do you want to hear from the president tomorrow night? >> well, i'd like to hear a genuine jobs creation scheme, a reduction or certainly a mitigation of a lot of current regulations. and less emphasis on green energy schemes. i was very somewhat frightened by the inaugural address citing global warming as the -- co2 reduction as the number one priority. that sounds to me like more green energy schemes and a deemphasis on something like exploiting the nation's plentiful shale gas reserves which if properly exploited could make us hugely competitive as a manufacturer. but i'm afraid all that's going to be on the back burner because according to the inaugura
at the energy sector, which has done tremendously well and could expand as well and do better under the next few quarters as it did over the past. pushingn't think it is us back into recession and i think if we prioritize the cuts -- that it would set the stage for doing even more of that down the road. any of you want to add anything to my soliloquy? >> in terms of energy, you are absolutely right. we have an opportunity to move forward to generate jobs, the, and energy security. it will take conscious decisions in making decisions about -- keystone xl pipeline. you will immediately start generating jobs and all the indirect effects. but unfortunately what we have is a debate against it for some reason that somehow the opponents of canadian oil stands thinks stopping keystone xl will stop developing the oil sands. it is not true. the oil sands are worth something like 10 times the gdp of canada. the notion it would not be developed is silly. if you really believe in environmentalism you'll bring that oil here because it's lower emissions. we need to make decisions in terms of exports of energy.
's firmly shaped or a bucket 3 which is tradable recs or tradable renewable energy credits, the price of those is dramatically different depending upon which one you choose. and, so, just to give you a rate comparison, if you buy bundled recs, that actually ties the renewable energy to a physical place where we can point to that power plant, that solar panel, that wind farm. that has in the marketplace -- that costs about 5 cents a kilowatt hour. if we buy a tradable rec, we can typically get those for less than a quarter of a penny per kilowatt hour. so, depending upon which green attribute we want to green up our portfolio, be it a light green portfolio versus a dark green portfolio, or whatever shade of green in between, it's either very expensive or less expensive depending upon which ones we do. so, what we've done is we've dusted off the lighter shade of green and then also our premium green product and showed you the mix there. and the key financial considerations are that the renewable product mix is what drives the difference in premium. and our deep green product is about $1

and have a conversation. we have john felmy who will talk to us about energy. he won't do forecasting of energy prices but he'll talk about the energy situation and what we'll see in more exploration of energy supplies. it is something that his chamber has made a focal point of the growth strategy. it will be interesting to hear from john. we're also going to hear from frank nothaft. he's an expert i've known frank for -- i won't say because he looks younger than i do. it is a long time. he's an expert in the housing market and if that is one of the bright spots in the economy today. then finally, we're going have bob costello who is the chief economist at the a.t.a. we build stuff and we put it on trucks and move it around. if you keep track of the trucks you can keep track of the economy. i'm happy they all agreed to be here this morning. if you look at the u.s. economy you see an economy growing three and half years ago but the problem is it never hit its stride. it grew but it grew at 3.5%. we never made up the g.d.p. gap. so you have seen this chart in the recent c.b. o. but it i
government, everything, everything, post office, roads, transportation, justice, education, energy, defense, everything else is about $1 trillion. you all just heard what the deficit was last year. $1.3 trillion. which means we can do away with the entire federal government with the exception of medicare, medicaid and social security and we wouldn't even balance the budget. that's the magnitude of the challenge that we have. so it's incumbent upon us to come up with solutions, positive solutions. so what are we trying to do on the house republican side? our goals as we step back and look and try to focus on what the goals ought to be are to increase economic freedom, to provide economic greater opportunity for individuals, to balance the budget within a 10-year period of time so that we can create that economic vitality in this country and create jobs and pass off that wonderful great land of opportunity to our kids and our grandkids so that their dreams can be realized and not stifled. along those lines we've laid out a three to four honor month strategy that started a couple weeks ago whe
